The overarching goals of the internship experience are growth and experience. Our hope is that you will learn valuable skills while gaining exposure and professional experience in a multitude of functional areas. Your internship(s) can be completed in a variety of sports organizations within the collegiate, professional, interscholastic, not-for-profit, community, or sports business sectors.
Finding an internship is a collaborative and customized process that takes into consideration where students hope to be geographically (the IAL program allows students to choose any region of the country to complete their work), future career interests (within coaching and administration), and which types of campuses and functional areas they would like to gain exposure to. After interests have been identified, students are connected to individuals within our extensive IAL network who match their internship criteria. This network includes professionals from our Advisory Board, IAL alumni network, prior internship site supervisors, as well as guest speaker contacts.
